Moto E is here and it is surprisingly affordable. Clearly, Motorola is quite serious when it says that it plans to bring the feature-phone users to the smartphone world.
Priced at just INR 6,999 in India, Motorola’s new Moto E smartphone packs the best of both hardware and software world, which makes the phone a no-brainer purchase of anyone looking to grab a good budget Android smartphone.
